Will try to make this short. During a poly I had a few years ago I falsely admitted to committing criminal conduct a few years prior to the poly. It was a really stupid mistake and I felt very intimidated by my examiner who was coming off as rather hostile towards me. I know I should’ve stuck to the truth but he wouldn’t let me begin the poly until he got the answer he wanted. After the admission we started the poly (my second of the day) but he just cut the test short and said he couldn’t get a reading.
Fast forward to last year when I had another offer from another agency. They saw my poly record and said everything was fine but when I went in and they questioned me about it. I told them that I regretted not telling the truth during my poly and that I felt pressured to make an admission. At that point I don’t know if I should’ve just stuck with it but I told them I falsely admitted to something during my poly due to A B C reasons.
Both times I was told I was not denied a security clearance but that my COE was rescinded and that I could reapply in a year. Is there a way to mitigate this personal misconduct if I want to reapply for a position today? Or should I not even try and just let more time pass? Any answers would be appreciated.
